The Star Wars X-Wing glider comes to Fortnite’s in-game shop

Star Wars: Squadrons Fortnite

Star Wars: Squadrons isn’t an Epic Games Store exclusive anymore. You can get the game on Steam as well as Origin, whatever you prefer. Well, this doesn’t conclude that Epic doesn’t have any leverage when communicating with people about which store is the right one.

 This tweet will give you an idea about what are we trying to say:

The Fortnite glider will be coming on top of the New Republic Recruit along with an Imperial Ace cosmetic item. These are the items that will be offered to the users who have pre-ordered the title via Epic Games Store as a bonus for pre-orders. However, this offer isn’t going to weight much for the users who are not fond of Fortnite. But, there are still a lot of people who do play Fortnite. And an exclusive glider seems to be a huge deal for the Fortnite fans.

Star Wars: Squadrons is playable on the PS4, PC and Xbox One on October 2, 2020.
